  1. It's a better result for Motherwell than Hibs. You can be sure they have designs on that minimum 4th place finish. OF will take the top 2 spots I would be surprised if Aberdeen didn't take either 3rd or 4th. So that would leave one spot up for grabs which Motherwell are in pole position to take. It might not be settled till the post split matches play out.
  2. It's still a strong position for a Euro spot finish.
  3. Hibs have worked their way into it somewhat after being totally outplayed first half. Hoping the lack of a goal in that first half doesn't prove fatal.
  4. I don't think we can be too critical of the players. Let's face it, they have better players in every position and there's a reason they're in the knockout stages of the Europa league. Can only hang in there and look for something on the break. Trying to go at them would be suicidal.
  5. We can consider this one to be a free hit. All things being equal the chances of taking anything from it are slim at best but then again no direct competitors will be taking anything there either. Fear the worst while hoping for the best. This wont define or greatly affect the season.
  6. Motherwell chief executive Alan Burrows says "this is just the end of the beginning" after the fan-owned club announced they are virtually debt-free. Payments of around £1.5m have been repaid to former owners John Boyle and Les Hutchison, who helped facilitate the Well Society's 2016 takeover. In the region of £80,000 is still owed through loans to five fans. "It's very important now for nobody to rest on their laurels, for no-one to put the tools away," Burrows said. Burrows has revealed one of the options that may now be explored is the possibility of moving away from the club's home at Fir Park. The Lanarkshire club have resided on the site since 1895 but must consider the costs of maintaining a stadium that was largely redeveloped in the mid 1990s. "I think everything has to be on the table," Burrows said. "We have got to look to always try our best to keep up with modern standards, both in terms of training ground and a stadium. "From my own point of view, I have been working within the ground for a long period of time. We are now in 2019 and the stadium probably has to be a debate and a question that is put on the agenda quite high in the not too distant future. A training ground goes without saying. "We have a really good facility at Dalziel Park, but we need to look at how we can either develop that or somewhere else to try to take the club to the next level." https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/50273546
  7. I smell the reek of an irrelevance at the wind up. Get this Einstein. It's a thread about a Rangers game so you can piss off and don't tell me or anyone else which threads to post on or what to post about. In fact I have already decided that I would have zero interest in anything a tit like you would have to say so you're now on ignore. You do the same with me and that's any problem solved.
  8. A more important question is would Motherwell still have won if he hadn't been red carded.
  9. I talk about Celtic in the same manner. Am I a fanboy of both or is that just something you think is impressive to throw in? It's not. This desperation to sell is the fantasy here which I suspect you have pulled from the fantasy material the internet is littered with. The reality is they owe money to no one but directors with deep pockets who are going to convert those loans to shares. Do you grasp what winning the league and achieving CL football would earn them? You're talking a minimum £40 million just for making the group stages then millions more in gate money. That's their objective and to get there they need quality like Morelos. To suggest they're desperate to unload him when week after week he's proving how much they need him and have Gerrard actually coming out stating they have to keep him is the real fantasy here. Pulled out of thin air with not scrap of evidence to support and ample evidence to dispute it. They will sell him at some point but given he's contracted till 2023 there is no rush to cash in. He's money in the bank for them at anytime they want to cash in over the next few years.
  10. They're a difficult team to beat and outside this defeat and 2 defeats to the OF they have lost only one other league game and that was back at the beginning of the season away to Hamilton when their new manager hadn't yet figured out how to deploy them. They finished 3rd last season and appear capable of top 4 or thereabouts again.
  11. And you appear to be vacuous enough to continue your grunting with nothing but your own grunting to support it. Bring something to support it.
  12. I just desperately want it to be over now as it stands across the league. Puts Motherwell in 3rd place and 2 points clear of 5th.
  13. I don't think he deserved a red but it is what it is. They're down to 10 men and we're ahead against a competitor for the 3rd/4th spot. These games are 6 pointers.
  14. He's not my goal machine though I wish he were and frankly who in Scotland wouldn't. What I have heard is that everyone including the board is more than keen to keep him because yes he's a valuable asset who can bring in mega millions but they want to win the league then make the CL groups where the money on offer would eclipse the price tag on Morelos. He's key to that ambition. Their problem is that Morelos himself ultimately wants a move to the EPL so their issue is persuading him to stay when the offers do come along. He's contracted till 2023 so there is no urgency to cash in. If anything the price tag would only increase if they can get him CL experience.
